The Wilson Center and The Arts Council of Wilmington & NHC are pleased to announce the creation of a new series to support our local area artists impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Arts Council will be accepting donations which will support the artists featured in the Wilson Center Ghostlight Series. Links will be provided during each performance, and all donations are tax deductible.
This new series of nightly performances will feature local and regional artists, and will be available at the link below, on our social media, and re-broadcast by WHQR. Each evening in the 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. hour, George Scheibner will highlight the previous evening’s Ghostlight Series artist on Smooth Landings.
The first week of performances will include local artists Christina Brier, Jared Michael Cline, Chase Johanson, Rhythm Bones, Daniel Rottenberg, Delia Stanley, and Johanna Winkel.
The Arts Council is accepting applications from local music artists who have been economically impacted by the pandemic, and a committee will select the artists for each week’s performances. Please fill out the following application to be considered. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ghostlight: A ghostlight is a light which is left lit on the stage of a theatre when the theatre is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark. Some superstitions say that the ghostlight allow each theatre’s ghost(s) to perform on stage, while others say it is to frighten away the ghosts.
